QKSMS Is A Colorful And Modern Android Text Messaging Client That Pops [Hands-On]

Before the release of Android 4.4, stock Android came with a basic SMS app. It served as a simple way to exchange text messages the old-school way, without dealing with data connections or usernames. Then the functionality got merged into Hangouts, and while a new standard Messenger app is returning for 5.0, there are many people with devices that won't see that update for months—if ever.

That leaves plenty of room for a basic texting app, one without a fancy name or a distracting icon, and one that doesn't look out of place compared to Google's first-party offerings.

HTC Weather Hovers Over The Play Store, Forecast Says It Should Only Affect A Few Devices

HTC has dropped its Weather app into the Play Store. Forecasts suggest that it will only impact people who own one of the manufacturer's more recent phones running Android 4.4 or higher. Even then, there's a slight chance that it won't work on certain seemingly eligible devices just yet. With any luck, this problem will dissipate over the coming days.

HTC RE Android App Hits Google Play So You Can Manage Content And Actually See What Your Camera Is Recording

The HTC RE is the kind of camera that doesn't come with a viewfinder. Similar to GoPro's action-oriented video recorders, the RE is something that you wear while doing something active or hold pointed vaguely towards something of interest.

The RE doesn't require a paired device to work, but if you really need to see what the device is picking up, you can turn to the companion app. HTC has dropped it into the Play Store for users to install on their smartphones regardless of make or model.

Official Greyhound Lines Android App Arrives At The Google Play Terminal

Sometimes buses arrive a little late. Depending on where you live, they occasionally even arrive on time. Greyhound has now released an official Android app, after having replicated this experience pretty well. It's not necessarily a problem to wait until Android and iOS have been around for several years before making an app, but with Greyhound having launched one for its BoltBus line half a year ago, this release does feel a little behind schedule.

Google Releases 'Primer: Marketing For Startups' App To Help Small Teams Get Their Brand Out There

Primer: Marketing for Startups isn't like most of Google's other Android apps. For starters, it's the first to appear in the Play Store under the publisher "Google Learn." The app also happens to be such a niche product that only a specific target demographic will benefit from it.

As the name says, Primer is aimed at helping startups manage their marketing efforts. A great deal of work and knowledge goes into getting a new brand in front of consumers and establishing awareness.
